Short Cruise Ship Stop in Killybegs

Will by in Killybegs on Wednesday 26 June from 07:00 to 15:00. Can't find much tourist information. Would it be better to stay in Killybegs or go to Donegal? Are there any private guided tours of the area?

Wonderful job on the history of the Killybegs area, Catherine. Thank you.

South Donegal doesn't get that much publicity in terms of these forums.

For people staying in the town of Sligo, for example, this drive for the north of the county could be extended into Co Donegal to include Killybegs for a pleasant and interesting Day Trip:

And if you are heading down to St John's Point you should have a meal in Castlemurray House Hotel, which is truly stunning.

if they're off a cruise ship the last thing they need is more food!!!

On a cruise , if you miss a meal, there's always another one coming!!

I would strongly suggest hiring a taxi and visiting Slieve League cliffs and the village od Glencolmcille nearby. Go as early as possible and leave time to explore Killybegs before you sail. Excellent traditional music will be laid on in the pubs, I'm sure. I shall be on the same cruise ie Oriana so may see you on board. I'm originally from Sligo so know the area well. Richard

The OP posted in 2013 >>> Will by in Killybegs on Wednesday 26 June from 07:00 to 15:00. <<< I think they have come & gone by now.

Does anyone know if there are any car rental facilities in Killybegs, these days, other than golden-oldies-self-drive-classics?

Hi Catherine,

Thank you for your thoughtful and comprehensive reponse to this post. My husband, our 18 year old son, and I are spending 5 nights together after 11 of us will be near Galway for one week. We are thinking about finding a cottage in Killybegs. Do you have cottages or Inns you would recommend? We will have a car and will drive to Donegal and the Slieve Cliffs, hike, and enjoy the area. Thank you for any suggestions.

Ali, this thread is years old, and your question has nothing to do with a 'short cruise ship stop in killybegs', so do start a new thread. I only read this because it is pitch dark outside, not light for another hour, bucketing down with rain, still in bed , and bored.
